Stress levels, challenges and your new normal

Published on 23rd June 2017

Your stress levels, the challenges and your new normal

How high are your stress levels as an adopter ?

I know that at times my stress went through the roof (and I’m a stress management expert!) but peace and harmony are more the order of the day in our home now (well mostl!y).

I am just so glad that I got control back (from a 3 year old who had a phd in manipulation!) and have nurtured our relationship to help him feel safe and listened to. I hate to think how our teenage years would be if I hadn’t.

And that’s the thing…

We can probably get by, tolerating and absorbing and allowing the challenging behaviour whilst they are young and then that way of being becomes our “new normal”. We adapt, get good at walking on egg shells and toughening our skin…

BUT that is not what you adopted for. Now is the time to take some action. Whether it is with me or other support, to build more harmony in your home.

Let me know if you would like a chat and we can make a time or look at my 15 minute free trial to my  Building Resilience-course to get some useful hints and tips.

"I was impressed by the way the Adoption Support course "Building Resilience"was structured and so easy to navigate. Gill is an excellent presenter. There was a wide range of relevant, experienced based content, delivered in an enthusiastic, caring, considered way. I enjoyed the activities and found them to be a great way of recapping on what I had learnt and adapting the strategies to suit my situation. I have learned many new ideas and found myself questioning my own feelings and behaviours"
